Sideslips by "Baladeur"

I have happened upon an entry of a La Buire streamlined saloon in the 1924 Touring Grand Prix at Lyons," writes a correspondent, "to be driven by the veteran Szisz"; and he goes on to ask whether this is the great Szisz of 1906 Grand Prix fame. I have every reason to suppose that it was, and while I do not know whether M Szisz is yet with us, I heard of him some considerable time after 1924 when...

Benetton in the dock

Pre-race revelations by the FIA in Hockenheim blew the cloud created by the HA World Council meeting in Paris, a few days earlier, into a storm of controversy that cast doubt on the credibility of the Benetton team's achievements in the 1994 FIA World Championship. After imposing a two-race ban on Schumacher and upping Benetton's fine to $500,000 in the wake of the Silverstone black flag incident...

Brighton Run

The RACNCC Veteran Car Run from London's Hyde Park to the Madeira Drive at Brighton, with Benson & Hedges sponsorship and held this year on November 7, has become a national, nay a world-renowned, happening. Never more so, indeed, than this year, with an entry of 460 pre- 1905 vehicles — the police being more lenient over the total allowed in view of the much improved Brighton Road in recent...

Cars I have owned

I am a post-war motorist without the opportunities of the older generation, but, by carefully looking through the back of this magazine, I have managed to enjoy fine and interesting cars at reasonable expense, before they have had to be unloaded onto somebody else. Not setting your sights too high also avoids a list of cars running thus : A Bentley, An Austin Seven —which is inclined to make you...

An Enthusiastic Visit to the Paris Motor Show

Having just left the Montlhèry track, my thoughts were still on high performance, speed and exciting motor cars, and immediately after churning through the turnstiles leading into the Grand Palais, off the Champs Elysees, where the 41st Motor Exhibition was being held, I came face to tail with one of the prettiest rear ends seen for a long time. It belonged to the exciting little Alfa-Romeo...

In the heat and the cold

There was a time when Formula One seemed very simple, almost too simple in fact; when nearly everyone had a Cosworth powered "kit-car" and the big technical break-through was when a team actually made its own gearbox casing. There were some "renegades" like Ferrari and Alfa Romeo, and Matra for a time, but the whole set-up seemed very uncomplicated. Practice took place on the two days before the...

Cars I Have Owned

This time by J. C. Morland, who describes motoring enthusiasm as it breaks out in Kenya. My first car was a 1924 Senechal which I bought in 1926. It came after a succession of six motor-cycles and two Morgans, both of which latter had the water-cooled o.h.v. Blackburne engine and one of which was a rare bird, being a single-seater. It made up for having only one seat by having two gear-levers,...
